Earlier this week, Het Nieuwsblad explained Queens Park Rangers have ‘reached an agreement’ with Club Brugge for the sale of Bright Osayi-Samuel.
It was also reported the player’s move to the Jupiler Pro League ‘is not certain’, and the midfielder had to make a decision.
Het Laatste Nieuws now claim the Championship side wanted to cash in €5.5m from the 22-year-old’s sale, and they offered him to Leicester City, West Bromwich Albion and Burnley.
However, the player has turned down the opportunity to join any of the Premier League clubs, and has set his sights on signing for Club Brugge.
The Belgian side will feature in next season’s Champions League, and according to HLN this has weighed on his decision to join them over other suitors.
It’s also claimed the QPR star travelled from London to Ostende on Tuesday afternoon. If ‘all goes well’, he will undergo medical tests on Wednesday, and a deal could be announced as early as Thursday.
Even though QPR wanted €5.5m, HLN state Club Brugge will pay less than €4.5m to acquire Osayi-Samuel’s services.
Het Nieuwsblad are also reporting that Osayi-Samuel travelled to Belgium in a private jet on Tuesday.
They state he went from the airport directly to the ‘negotiating table’, where further discussions would take place regarding the transfer.
It’s claimed both clubs have found an agreement for just under €5m, and it’s now between Brugge and the player to sort out an agreement. ‘That is why Osayi-Samuel personally flew to Belgium’ on Tuesday.
